Day 10 – The Spirit Poured Out for Mission
Scriptures to Meditate on and Pray Through –
“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful” (Hebrews 10:23).
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8).
How to Pray: Trusting God’s Faithfulness – Think of God’s promises to His Son concerning His kingdom, to the church concerning the lost, to His servants concerning their ministry, and to you concerning your prayer life. Then pray in the assurance that He is faithful; He waits for prayer and faith so that He can answer and fulfill every request. “Faithful is he that calls you [to pray], who also will do [what He has promised]” (1 Thessalonians 5:24 KJV). Take up individual missionaries that you know; make yourself one with them, and pray until you know that you are heard. Intercede on their behalf. There may be times and places where they are unable to pray and count on those at home to bridge the gap!
What to Pray: For God’s Spirit to be pour out on His Church for Mission –
What the world needs today is not only more missional people but the outpouring of God’s Spirit on all of us He has sent out to work for Him “beyond borders”. God always gives His servants power equal to the work He asks of them. Think of the vastness and difficulty of this work. Most places whether in the marketplace or the workplace are under the power and sway of the enemy of our souls. Missional people enter into Satan’s strongholds. Before any significant work can be done, these powers must be broken down. Spiritual warfare is the order of the day. We must pray for those who have understood it their life’s work to face these difficulties head on and to minister to those who in many cases have never heard the name of Jesus, much less know anything of the Gospel. The work of prayer for us to be missional people is not easy. It takes dedication, concentration, and persistence. Do not give up the fight. God is with you.
